Adding an antique carpet to an interior space can drastically change the look of a room. While there are many different styles of antique rugs and carpets to choose from, there are some tried-and-true rules to follow when it comes to choosing the size and placement of your rug.
Natural fiber rugs are the most resilient. The smartest choice for a rug that will last is always wool or silk rather than synthetic fibers, which age more rapidly.
Use long, rectangular rugs to decorate rooms like bathrooms and kitchens to create a visual “path”. This adds both interest and a sense of order to your space.
